CHICKASHA – The Southwestern Christian Eagles overcame an early deficit to pull ahead of the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Saturday afternoon’s conference match up.
It was the tale of two halves for the Drovers (5-16, 4-14), who led by as much as 10 points early and had the 37-33 advantage going into halftime. But the Lady Eagles (9-17, 7-11) came out strong after the break to claim their first — and final — lead of the night just four minutes into the second half. SCU won 83-67.
Senior Rashelle Carr had a career-high 23 points in the game, sinking 10 shots, three of which were three pointers. She also led the team in rebounding with nine in the game.
Paige Pulliam, also a senior, scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds on Saturday. She led the team in assists with four.
Brittany Elkins scored 14 points, shooting 50 percent from the field, to add to USAO’s total.
As a team, the Drovers shot nearly 42 percent from the field.
The Drovers play in their final home game of the season on Tuesday night, taking on Texas Wesleyan at 6 p.m. for Senior Night. The Drovers wrap up the regular season on the road (24) Wayland Baptist on Thursday night.
Saturday was Alumni Day, and USAO welcomed all OCW, OCLA and USAO alumni back to the campus.
